Re: Alarm works!

I seem to recall that the alarm will re-synchronize if you use the actual
key to open the car door once.  At least here in Europe...  :^)

I actually think it's in the owner's manual.  My new A6 Avant is sitting
out in the driveway, but with pissing rain and 3 deg. C weatther I'm not
heading out to double-check.
